Over the years, a number of interns in the Objects & Variable Art Lab have written blog posts for the IMA. But this week, Jessica Ford and Katherine Langdon (who, you might remember, wrote “Caring for Bronze in the Community” this summer) have moved on to the proverbial “big time” to pen a two-part post on the American Institute for Conservation’s News Blog about their recent East Coast road trip to research art conservation graduate schools: Buffalo State College, New York University (my alma mater), and the University of Delaware.
The IMA’s conservation staff included graduates from each of these training programs, and former faculty from Buffalo State and University of Delaware. Needless to say, we take training the next generation of conservators seriously around here. So, please go over to AIC’s News Blog and check out Jessica and Katherine’s work:
- On the Road to Conservation: Pre-Program Road Trip – Part 1
Jessica talks about making a trip out to University of Delaware and New York University to see their graduate programs.
- On the Road to Conservation: Pre-Program Road Trip – Part 2
Katherine talks about visiting the Buffalo State College graduate program and nearby cities.
Both Jessica and Katherine are applying to conservation graduate school this year and we wish them well!
